We studied the dose-response effects of the F(ab')2 fragments of murine monoclonal antibodies to the platelet GPIIb/IIIa receptor (7E3 and 10E5) on in vivo platelet thrombus formation in a well-characterized monkey model in which the carotid artery is stenosed and thrombus formation is provoked and augmented by intimal damage and the infusion of(More)
OBJECTIVES This study sought to describe in detail the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of chimeric monoclonal 7E3 Fab (c7E3 Fab) and to compare platelet responses to adenosine diphosphate (ADP) and the 11-amino acid thrombin receptor-activating peptide (TRAP [SFLLRNPNDKY-NH2]) in patients undergoing elective coronary angioplasty. BACKGROUND(More)
We used 600-femtosecond electron pulses to study the structural evolution of aluminum as it underwent an ultrafast laser-induced solid-liquid phase transition. Real-time observations showed the loss of long-range order that was present in the crystalline phase and the emergence of the liquid structure where only short-range atomic correlations were present;(More)
Femtosecond electron diffraction (FED) has the potential to directly observe transition state processes. The relevant motions for this barrier-crossing event occur on the hundred femtosecond time-scale. Recent advances in the development of high-flux electron pulse sources with the required time resolution and sensitivity to capture barrier-crossing(More)
BACKGROUND The glycoprotein (GP) IIb/IIIa receptor antagonist abciximab is approved for use in high-risk percutaneous coronary interventions. The purpose of the present study was to establish the pharmacodynamic profile and platelet-bound life span of abciximab. METHODS AND RESULTS The pharmacodynamics of abciximab (inhibition of ex vivo platelet(More)
BACKGROUND Large, randomized, and blinded clinical trials (EPIC, EPILOG, and CAPTURE) have demonstrated that abciximab (ReoPro, chimeric 7E3 Fab) markedly reduces thrombotic events associated with percutaneous transluminal coronary interventions. The marked early benefits at 30 days were sustained at 6 months and 3 years. Initially developed because of its(More)
The successful elimination of pathogenic cells and microorganisms by the humoral immune system relies on effective interactions between host immunoglobulins and Fc gamma receptors on effector cells, in addition to the complement system. Essential Ig motifs that direct those interactions reside within the conserved IgG lower hinge/CH2 interface. We noted(More)
A number of proteases of potential importance to human physiology possess the ability to selectively degrade and inactivate Igs. Proteolytic cleavage within and near the hinge domain of human IgG1 yielded products including Fab and F(ab')(2) possessing full Ag binding capability but absent several functions needed for immune destruction of cellular(More)
Tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs) have been shown to promote tumor progression, and increased TAM infiltration often correlates with poor prognosis. However, questions remain regarding the phenotype of macrophages within the tumor and their role in mAb-dependent cytotoxicity. This study demonstrates that whereas TAMs have protumor properties, they(More)
A large number of glycoprotein (GP) IIb/IIIa receptors are present on the surface of platelets. Studies to define precisely the number of GPIIb/IIIa receptors using specific monoclonal antibodies (MoAbs) or fibrinogen binding have, however, yielded varying estimates of receptor number. To refine the quantitative estimation of GPIIb/IIIa receptors on resting(More)
